If I Won The Lottery

Okay, fine, I didn’t win the Powerball jackpot — if I did, I would’ve disappeared from social media and holed up with a lawyer somewhere. Instead, here I am…blogging about what I would’ve done if I had won. (Seriously, Universe, I would’ve settled for like a $100 million.)

♦Pay off all my student loans. And Nick’s student loans. And maybe my brother’s, if he was nice.
♦Pay off our cars.
♦Buy nice apartments in all of my favorite cities (Miami, New York, Philadelphia…)
♦New furniture (especially giant mattresses) and wood flooring everywhere.
♦Actually buy something from Everlane.
♦Travel…pretty much everywhere. First up would have to be London, Cuba or Thailand.
♦Donate to some of my favorite organizations.
♦Hire a personal trainer and nutritionist so I could indulge in my favorite meals the rest of the time.
♦Try to convince Nick that we need a third dog since we can afford an on-call dogsitter.
♦Save some (ugh, boring) and share some (yay!).

Anyone else still have big lottery dreams?

Hope everyone is enjoying a lazy Sunday!


Love this roundup from my friend Emily breaking down some of the best neighborhoods in Philly.

This will be interesting: Etsy has a new competitor; it goes by the name of Amazon Handmade.

Speaking of… these are the must-try beauty products on Amazon.

The simplest rewards that aren’t food or shopping.

Have you ever wondered why people don’t have parties anymore? (P.S. If you want to change that and host your own get-together, I highly recommend my friend Chrystina’s blog.)

I still need to see The Martian, but this list of the best survival movies has some pretty excellent options for a movie night in.

Darci is killing it with her latest blog series, Women Crush(ing It) Wednesday. So much inspiration.

Happy Friday!


So much has happened in the last week and I’m still recovering, but most importantly I finally got my driver’s license and I had an amazing time celebrating my birthday! (Closer to 30 than 19 — insane.) This weekend, I’m heading back to the Bronx to celebrate homecoming so that should be fun too! Anyway, this is what I’ve been reading lately:

How Connie Britton rocks the feminism conversation. (Anyone else excited for Nashville to come back next week?)

Four big lessons from the summer box office.

Are girl squads the new power couple?

Why is it so hard for smart women to find dates?

Love how this tattoo artist is transforming women’s lives.

This is a bummer: salads actually aren’t that healthy (and it’s not just the dressing).
